Rhye – “Taste”

Last week, Los Angeles based indie duo Rhye returned with their third new track of the year, following the previously released stunners “Please” and “Summer Days,” both tinged with the potent auras of painful, unrequited desires and deep-rooted nostalgia  – an amalgamation of emotions that Rhye has always emulated flawlessly through deep, brooding basslines and soft, breathy vocals. “Taste” uses both of those elements in a new arrangement, with Mike Milosh’s relatively deeper, yet still delicate falsetto at the center of a vortex composed of bass and synth, playful and eerie all at once. With the new track, the R&B duo has added a third aura to their repertoire – mystery – but as the track simmers down with the entrance of somber piano and strings, its clear that the emotions that make up your foundation is harder to escape than previously thought.
